Cary Magazine Movers & Shakers: Brigitte Specht

Position: Senior area manager of business development at Sunrise Senior Living; reform advocate for the senior care industry

Favorite accomplishment: “I am most proud of bringing my two beautiful daughters into this world. I am also proud to work for Sunrise, a company that lives its mission, ‘To Champion the Quality of Life for All Seniors,’ and encourages team members to do the same. It makes my heart happy to have helped families in Wake County find comfort, support, solutions and peace while caring for an aging family member.”

Motivation: “Relationships motivate me in all aspects of my life. Each person I encounter brings a new energy to me, more happiness, a new perspective on a situation and sometimes a new goal to achieve.”   

Biggest challenge: “Being a successful traveling, working mother and wife.”

Guiding philosophy: ‘“You’ve got to create what you want to be a part of,’ Geri Weitzman said. In my mind, there are no limitations. There is always a way to have a happy life and a place where you love to work every day if you just create it, and share your joy with others.”

Fun fact: “I love dirt track racing, and wear swim goggles to keep the dirt out of my eyes so I don’t miss any of the action. People look at me funny, but I don’t care.”

Advice: “Find out what inspires you and do it. Know who you are and be proud of it.”
